Luke McDowall Pt. 2

I met Luke during a mens mental health walk (for lack of a better term) and was instantly inspired by him - as were all the other walkers. At 14 Luke was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis (Sometimes referred to as T5 Transverse Myelitis). Seemingly out of nowhere, during a school day, Luke went from fine to having a tingly feeling in his legs then to 10 weeks in hospital and then a wheelchair. During this chat, Luke chronicles that journey alongside its many lessons and how oneness and synchronicity guide him everywhere he goes. Speaking about the elements, spiritual awareness and mental toughness whilst sharing his love for discipline but still having a good time - this chat can only be described as lightly heavy hearted (- I know).
